Inside an 1880's brownstone originally designed by Stanford White (McKim, Meade, and White), 47 West 119th Street is a unique home on a picturesque tree-lined street conveniently located between Lenox and Fifth Avenues.
Filled with light and air, this apartment has more open space than most - featuring large loft-like rooms with stunning views through large windows. Spread over four floors including the second floor, parlor floor, ground floor, and sub-basement. This apartment also includes exclusive access to the private backyard.
You may enter the apartment on the parlor floor, which is a column-free space that freely joins the newly renovated kitchen with the dining and living rooms. Decorated with two original fireplaces, this floor is perfect for entertaining friends and family and is flooded with great light all day through the one-of-a-kind arched window facing south.
The unique and compact staircase heading upstairs allows for great airflow and brings you to the top floor which contains an open office, a full bathroom, and a large bedroom that faces into the treetops of West 119th Street and is adorned with a magnificent original fireplace and detailing.
On the ground floor of the home, you will find a large warm & cozy den with another decorative fireplace, two full bathrooms, and a bedroom that connects to the private backyard. You may also enter the apartment through a private entryway under the stoop leading directly into the den.
The backyard has been well cared for by one of the greenest thumbs uptown and features roses, hyacinths, hops, and local vine climbing all 3 sides, with an original stone pathway that leads visitors around the perimeter of the soft grass surface.
In the sub-basement, the owners have outfitted a gym with plenty of additional storage and the in-unit washer/dryer. Other features of this amazing home include multi-zone central air conditioning and heating, a dumb-waiter, and a central vacuum cleaner that you won't see anywhere else. The kitchen is currently under construction and not pictured. Call for more details.
